Whether you’re looking for the best small rolling cooler or something a little more polished to keep on your back porch for summer barbecues, you’ve come to the right place. There are a lot of different options out there which is why we researched some of the most buzzed about products and put together this guide. Before we get started, let’s take a look at some of the key things you need to know about before you shop.
Capacity: This figure tells you how much space the cooler has available. It's usually measured in quarts. For our picks, the capacity ranges from 30 to 100 quarts. The bigger the capacity, the more a cooler can hold.
Can Capacity: Can capacity is a much more relatable way to determine how much you can fit inside a cooler. For our picks, it ranges from 37 to 96 so, as you can see, there’s quite a range to pick from.
Material: We found rolling coolers made out of plastic, steel, canvas, and even rattan. There are a lot of options available. The cool thing is that, no matter how you plan to use your cooler, the perfect material is out there.
Portable: All of these coolers are portable simply because they all have wheels. That said, some of them are designed to roll from one side of your deck to another while others can go with you camping or to the beach.
Weight: Weight is important when it comes to anything portable but it’s particularly important with coolers because you’ll be filling them with other heavy things. The lighter an empty cooler is, the better, especially if you’ll be pulling it across different terrains.
Size: For coolers that you can take with you, one of the big things to keep in mind is that it will need to fit in your car. Make sure you choose one that won’t make transporting it too difficult.
